When is a Computer Repair Not a Computer Repair?

Updated: Sep 10, 2023

I’ve been in the computer repair business for a number of years now and I’ve always found it interesting that people usually search the internet using some variation of the term ‘computer repairs’ when there’s something wrong with their computer. In reality I wouldn’t define most of what I do as repairing computers at all! It was partly for this reason that I changed the name of the business from Norm’s Computer Repairs to Norm’s Computer Services earlier this year.

I guess that for me a repair constitutes opening the computer up and doing something on the inside, whether it’s adjusting something, resetting something, or replacing a part. I do lots of these types of repairs, but most computer ‘repairs’ don’t actually require the computer to be opened up at all. You might think your computer has a terminal problem if it won’t start up, but sometimes something like this can be resolved in a matter of seconds. Other repairs may involve a reinstall of your operating system or some other application, adjustment of your email settings, or removal of a virus, none of which require the removal of a single screw. Some of these repairs can even be done remotely, without the need for an actual visit to your location.

The bottom line is that I’m here to help you with whatever’s gone wrong with your computer. Whatever the issue, large or small, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I'm here to help, whether you’re in Brisbane, or anywhere in the City of Ipswich, Logan City or the Redlands.
